Whiskey means “water of life,” so drink the hell up.
Whiskey has a healthy dose of antioxidants. And the more antioxidants you’ve got, the more they can fight against serious health problems.
Time to drink up, because it has more antioxidants than cognac, grappa, rum, and some rosé and white wines.
Whiskey is carb-free and only has 64 calories per serving.
Compare that to red wine, which packs 130 calories and 4 of carbs, and it looks damn near healthy.
Sore throat? No problem, just gargle whiskey with a bit of warm water to numb the pain.
Seriously, this shit works.
Low-to-moderate alcohol consumption — whiskey included! — has been associated with a lower risk of Alzheimer’s.
There's not a ton of info on why this is, and it might be due to totally unrelated factors, but people who drink low-to-moderate amounts of alcohol (defined as up to 1 drink a day for women and 2 for men) have a lower risk of dementia. That said, heavier drinking has been shown to increase your risk.
